We've got a nice mix of game and hardware deals for you all this week, starting with a juicy discount on OCZ's 60GB Agility 3 solid-state drive. Formerly priced at $169.99, the drive is now on sale for $94.99 with free shipping, and you can get it down to $69.99 with a mail-in rebate.
I'm guessing the drive's vertiginous price drop has to do with that SandForce SF-2200-series blue screen of death issue. However, OCZ released a firmware fix for the problem earlier this week, which makes this discounted SSD a rather appealing proposition. Keep in mind the Agility 3 can purportedly hit sequential transfer speeds in the neighborhood of 500MB/s (slightly higher for reads, slightly lower for writes) when connected to a 6Gbps Serial ATA port.
We'd be remiss not to point out that Gigabyte's GV-R695OC-1GD Radeon HD 6950 1GB graphics card, which recently earned our Editor's Choice award, is still available for $239.99 with a free copy of DiRT 3—and a mail-in rebate that can knock it down to $219.99.
As usual, Amazon also has a heaping helping of discounted PC game downloads on offer:
